When compared to other countries, payroll taxes and insurances are the most complicated part of the Japanese tax system with four very different sets of taxes and insurance filings required. Each set of returns is filed at a different time of the year and the calculation basis for each type of tax / insurance is completely different.
Maintaining confidentiality of payroll is particularly important and Mazars has a system that, as far as possible, ensures that confidentiality is maintained at all times. A separate note on this is available from us on request. We also provide start of the art choices for delivery of employee pay-slips together with other confidential employee information. We either provide specially designed confidential pay slip envelopes or deliver the information to a portal which employees access with their own unique password or deliver directly to employees’ mobile phones.
